Brandon Kessler, founder of NY-based startup ChallengePost, is hiring software developers and other employees through a site hosted by Meetup. Made in New York City was created by Scott Heiferman, NY Tech Meetup’s co-founder. Kessler said that the site has allowed him to bypass recruiters in a very competitive market. “It’s huge,” he told Crain’s New York Business.
It makes looking for a job a lot easier for employees too. Ilya Katz applied to ChallengePost in May and started working there a month later. “I might have found this company otherwise, but the website certainly made it a lot easier,” he told Crain’s.
